All the details about this summer's Love Island

One of our favourite reality shows, winter Love Island, has finally come to an end, after Maya Jama presented the live final on 13th March. But you don't need to be too sad, as we don't have to wait too long for another instalment, as Love Island has been confirmed for another season later this summer. Woohoo!

The summer series was confirmed in June last year, ensuring our whole summer is filled with a brand new group of Islanders ready to fall in love.

But who will be in the cast? Where will the season take place? And will Maya Jama return as host? This is everything you need to know about the summer Love Island 2023 season.

When was summer Love Island 2023 confirmed?

The next season of Love Island was confirmed all the way back in June 2022 by ITV, who promised a double helping of the series for 2023.

At the time Paul Mortimer, the Director of Reality Commissioning and Controller at ITV2, said: "Love Island has once again proved itself to be the nation’s favourite talking point across the summer, and we’re always blown away by the show’s ongoing impact and talkability amongst our younger audience.

"So, rather than just serving up a Summer of Love, we thought we’d make 2023 the Year of Love with two full series of the show."

We can't wait!

Who will present summer Love Island?

The current winter series is being presented by the incredible Maya Jama, who took over from hosting duties after Laura Whitmore stepped down from the role in 2022.

Maya has been doing a great job so far, but we don't have 100 per cent confirmation that she'll be returning for the next season. Fingers crossed she does!

What is summer Love Island's release date?

Right now, we don't have an official starting date for the summer Love Island 2023 series. Usually the summer series starts in the first few weeks of June, so we'd imagine we'd see the new group of Islanders around this time too.

Series eight in 2022 kicked off on Monday, 6th June 2022, while season seven in 2021 landed on the 28th June. While 2020 didn't happen for obvious reasons, launch date in 2019 was Monday 3rd June, while 2018 was the 4th June.

Based on *all* of this information, we can roughly assume the first Monday in June will be the kick off date for summer Love Island 2023, the 6th.

Where will summer Love Island take place?

When announcing Love Island would be returning for summer 2023, ITV also confirmed the series would be taking place in its usual location of Mallorca.

Last year we saw the Islanders arrive at a brand new stunning villa, so it's likely it could take place there again. Let the countdown begin!

Winter Love Island is available to watch in full on ITVX.
